Below I have attached a link to the song “Welcome To Jamrock” by Damian Marley. I chose this song because I thought it had some relevance in our course material. I think Damian Marley’s music is very interesting, as it fuses aspects of Reggae with modern rap. I thought that this was a good example of creolization, taking aspects of popular Jamaican music and American and fusing them together. I think this is especially interesting since Damian’s father, Bob, is a reggae legend. I was able to see Damian in concert roughly seven years ago so I’ve always enjoyed his music. I hope you enjoy the song and find it applicable to our material as I did!

Thank you,
James S
